Central Nervous System (CNS) Medications (Nursing)

by Rhonda Lawes, PhD, RN

In this series of lectures, you will experience an extensive area of topics related to the central nervous system. Crucial topics such as Parkinsonโ€™s disease, Peptic Ulcer Disease, and Levodopa will be covered; as well as the medications and effects attached. The latter count as some of many highlighted themes to pay close attention to when you prepare for your NCLEX exam.

The course will also examine the causes and triggers of such neural diseases while shedding light on how a nurse should treat them precisely and professionally. You will revise the basics of nursing, such as the appropriate use of warfarin, to be further reminded of its importance and application in cases where you will have to deal with patients suffering from a pulmonary embolism, for example, where anticoagulant drugs are required.
